An application to run a catering service from a shipping container in a Clevedon industrial estate has been handed in.

A mobile catering van already operates at the site, a lay-by at the junction of Strode Road and Southern Way, every day.

But applicant Mr Mutlu is now asking for full planning permission to place a shipping container on the land.

The application’s design and access statement, written by agent Cadplan Architecture, says: “Converted former shipping containers are a common sight these days and offer a very acceptable re-use option.

“Many are given a new identity. The cabin in question would be finished with white paint with the owner’s company logo applied over in red.

“In our view it would be a great improvement over the existing arrangements.”

The consultation period for this application expires on Tuesday.

To comment on the scheme, visit North Somerset Council’s website and search for planning application 17/P/2320/F.
